“I would estimate that it's slightly less addictive than crack cocaine.”

I wish I could recommend this game. I really do. The game is great, tons of fun, difficult, etc. but is unplayable due to the fact that it crashes everytime you A) use the flamethrower B) use the shotgun C) have multiple explosions occur at once D) press start on your controller. I could go on and on with the number of things that shut this game down. The worst part is that, once shut down, it takes a good 5 minutes for steam to recognize that it's closed. No, it's not just my computer, multiple of my friends are experiencing the same problem.

The game is seriously fun and addicting.However, it crashes a lot if you kill to many enemies at the same time.Be warned that the game may crash during a highscore run.

As much as I love this game, the game just keeps crashing.

Use the flamethrower for more than 2 seconds? CRASH!
Double press attack when equipping flamethrower? CRASH!
You decide to jump? 1/200 chance to CRASH!
Spam shotgun? 1/200 chance to CRASH!

I know that the game is free, so can't complain; but can't play it either.
